  title={Nuclear History, Politics, and Futures from (A)toms-to(Z)oom: Design and Deployment of a Remote-Learning Special-Topics Course For Nuclear Engineering Education (preprint)/ en},
  author={Aaron J. Berliner and Jake J. Hecla},
To address the lack of familiarity with nuclear history common among nuclear engineers and physicists, we outline the design and deployment of a special-topics course entitled "NE290: Nuclear History, Politics, and Futures" across which we contextualize the importance of the field at its inception, in current affairs, and in future endeavors. We begin by outlining the gaps in secondary educational offerings for nuclear history and their importance in consideration with nontechnical engineering… 


This article focuses on two of the principal issues for science curriculum developers who wish to introduce the history and philosophy of science into the teaching of science — the jus- tification
Science Pedagogy as a Category of Historical Analysis: Past, Present, and Future
Historical studies of science pedagogy have flourished in recent years. This essay offers an assessment of the literature on science pedagogy from the 1930s to the present. It argues that rather than
Public Policy Pedagogy: Mixing Methodologies Using Cases
Over the past two decades, public policy professors have been confronted with a choice to teach either from the traditional positivist approach grounded in rationality, objectivity, and economics or
Faust in Copenhagen: A Struggle for the Soul of Physics
In April 1932, about forty mostly young scientists attended Niels Bohr's Copenhagen Institute for their week-long once-a-year freewheeling physics conference. For many, it would come to represent the
The Ethics of the Mechanical Engineer

109 East Palace: Robert Oppenheimer and the Secret City of Los Alamos
In 1943, Robert Oppenheimer, the brilliant, charismatic head of the Manhattan Project, recruited scientists to live as virtual prisoners of the U.S. government on a barren mesa thirty-five miles
Paul Ehrenfest’s Rough Road to Leiden: A Physicist’s Search for a Position, 1904–1912
Paul Ehrenfest (1880–1933) received his Ph.D. degree at the University of Vienna in 1904 and moved with his wife and young daughter to St. Petersburg in 1907, where he remained until he succeeded

The Earliest Known Use of a Material Containing Uranium
Some evidence exists for the use of a uranium mineral or compound by the Romans in Italy soon after the beginning of the Christian Era, and this evidence is called attention to critically to examine it critically.
